Practice Areas


Personal Injury

The attorneys at the West Law Firm have decades of litigation knowledge and experience that put our clients on a level playing field with the insurance companies. Below are some of the West Law Firm practice areas:

  • Wrongful Death

    When someone dies as a result of the negligence of a person or company, a wrongful death claim can be prosecuted by the personal representative of the estate of the deceased person on behalf of his or her spouse or children. We have represented many families in these tragic circumstances and realize the great difficulties that arise with such claims, and we bring our sensitivity to family issues along with our legal expertise to resolve these cases favorably for our clients.

  • Automobile Accidents

    Accidents involving motor vehicles are among the most common causes of serious injury and death in the United States, including the State of Washington. Despite the advancements in technology and significant safety improvements in cars and in the design of roads, automobile accidents remain quite common. In fact, automobile accident claims and lawsuits are probably the most common type of civil tort case filed by attorneys today. It is important to note that the more serious the injury that results from a car accident, the more likely it is that a successful recovery can be obtained. We have successfully handled many such claims on behalf of our clients.

  • Motorcycle Accidents

    Motorcycles are a common means of travel throughout the highways and streets of Washington. The very nature of motorcycles exposes their riders to the possibility of more severe injuries than other types of vehicles. The attorneys at the West Law Firm advocate for our clients’ full financial recovery through detailed, meticulous preparation for trial. If you have suffered a serious personal injury or a loved one died as a result of a motorcycle accident, please contact our firm to discuss your case.

  • Bicycle Accidents

    Bicycles are increasingly becoming a common means of transportation, recreation and exercise throughout Washington. Unfortunately, bicycles offer very little in terms of protection from the hazards confronting a bicyclist on the roadways of Washington, which are often not equipped with bike lanes and other protections for cyclists. This can, and often does, lead to severe and catastrophic injuries to bicyclists when an accident occurs. If you have suffered a serious injury or a loved one died as a result of a bicycle accident, please contact our firm to discuss your case.

  • Construction Site Accidents

    Each year, thousands of construction workers are injured or killed in construction sites. Although construction companies are required under Washington laws to inspect each site and implement a wide variety of safety measures, construction workers still face a greater risk of work-related injury or fatality than employees in any other U.S. industry. Our firm believes that most work site accidents are avoidable and that those not following laws to protect workers should be held accountable. We also represent members of the general public who have been injured as a result of the negligence of contractors.

  • Product Liability

    When a consumer buys a product, they rightfully expect it to perform safely and efficiently. When companies fail to provide proper warning that any part of their product is unsafe, or if using the product in a certain way could be hazardous to the user’s safety or health, then a person injured by the product may file a product liability claim against the company. Also, even if the product functioned as it was designed, but the design itself was negligent, a person injured by such a product may file a product liability claim against the company who designed the product.

  • Dog Bite Cases

    In Washington, an owner can be held strictly liable for damage which may result if their dog bites another individual or harms their property. If a person is bitten by a dog and is either on public property or lawfully on the owner’s property, the owner will generally be held accountable for the dog’s actions. In essence, if you are bitten by a dog, you are generally entitled to compensation for your injuries—regardless of the caution taken by the owner. Our firm has extensive knowledge and experience in representing victims of dog bites.

  • Business Fraud & Consumer Protection

    Unfortunately, although there are laws that protect us from fraud and deceit in our society, there are those who still engage in unethical practices designed to take our money. The attorneys in our firm have successfully taken on major corporations, car dealers, product sellers, and even for profit schools to recover money lost by innocent victims.

  • Bad Faith Insurance

    The West Law Firm also represents clients who were victims of their own insurance company. First party bad faith claims are related to the insurance companies’ obligation to the policyholders that they represent. When a claim is filed with an insurance company, that insurer has an obligation to settle the claim in a reasonable amount of time, for an amount that a reasonable person would believe they were entitled. When the insurance company fails to do this, the policyholder may have a claim against their own insurance company.
